Calcutta: England and Australia have both reiterated their support for the Decision Review System (DRS) after ICC’s general manager cricket, Geoff Allardice met representatives of both the teams and the ICC umpires in Durham on Thursday.
Allardice described on Wednesday meetings as “very constructive”, with the teams and umpires supporting the continued use of the Hot Spot technology in the final two Tests of the series that will be played at Chester-le-Street from Friday and at The Oval from August 21.
“We acknowledge that the DRS has not performed as effectively during the past three Tests as it has in other series. The purpose of my visit was to meet with the teams to listen to their feedback, and to identify potential improvements to DRS moving forward,” said Allardice.
“It was encouraging to hear both teams reiterate their support for the use of DRS. Some of the ideas that were suggested during the meetings could improve the system, and will be considered further by the ICC,” he said.
